Hi everyone, my name is Zoro

Hi there,

I am a sweet boy who needs a calm home where I can spend my time exploring as I am very curious. I am  quite independent, however I do love pats, chin rubs and generally following people around. I have a fun side and love to play, particularly kick toys and chasing wands. I would be best suited to a home with no young children as my excitable nature can sometimes be a little too much for small kids.

I am full of energy at times and love to run and jump – you will be surprised how fast I am and how high I can jump. My foster mum says I was a cheetah in a previous life.

While I love to sit and watch the world go by outside, I do like your company and will follow you from room to room to see what you are up to.

I tend to be a bit of a social eater but I do love my tucker especially crunchy biscuits.

I love to groom and keep my beautiful coat in tip top condition and I enjoy being brushed.

My foster mum says I am a little mischievous at times as I like to pounce at her calf when I want her attention. I also love water and sometimes pinch an ice cube from her glass to play with on the floor.

I love a bit of a chat and will call to you when I want to know where you are.

I have a condition called Feline Immunodeficiency virus (Also known as FIV) The staff can fill you in or else you can research this (it’s not scary, I promise!)

Take me home and I will be a loyal companion.

If you would like to meet me, please fill in an expression of interest form.


Adopting an animal

Adopting an animal is a rewarding experience that will last a lifetime. But before you adopt a pet please take some time to consider the commitment you are about to make. Sometimes the excitement of pet ownership can overshadow factors that should be considered before adoption.

Adopting a shelter pet is a lifelong decision that will have a major impact to your normal, everyday life. Please remember that a cat or dog can live for up to 20 years and they will rely only on you for their wellbeing for their entire life.

  • Do I have time to exercise the dog every day?
  • Do I have time for puppy pre-school and time to socialise a puppy?
  • Do I have at least an hour every day to spend with my cat?
  • Do I have time for obedience training?
  • If renting, does the landlord permit pets?
  • Is the backyard big enough and is the fencing secure?
  • Does the whole family want a pet?
  • Will the pet be allowed inside?
  • Will I have to move interstate or overseas in the foreseeable future?
  • Will I have to move to another rental property where the landlord may not allow pets.

Pets are a lifelong monetary commitment, you will need to factor in:

  • Weekly animal food bills and necessities
  • Yearly council registration
  • Monthly medications like heart worm/intestinal worm and flea treatments
  • Annual vet visits for vaccinations and check ups
  • Unexpected vet bills due to accidents or medical conditions
  • Ongoing grooming
  • Boarding fees for human holidays
  • Enrichment like training, toys etc
